Title: Denial of Citizenship for Immigrants in the U.S.
Synopsis: I am focusing on the denial of citizenship for immigrants migrating to the United States. Immigrants migrate to the U.S. in search of a new home upon fleeing from their native country to escape persecution, economic devastation, political oppression, gang violence, and so much more.

Title: Air Pollution
Synopsis: Air pollution has affected millions of people globally. It has destroyed so many people's lives and neighborhoods. It's time to help those with limited access, and stand up to those ignoring it.

Title: The Neglect Veterans Face
Synopsis: My topic is on the neglect veterans face when it comes to having a home to live in, access to mental health care, acceptance into jobs, lack of access to employment-based health insurance plans, physical conditions, and suicide rates. The neglect that veterans face is a broken relationship between veterans and people in society where people do not fully recognize the struggles that veterans face when they return home.

Title: The Ambiguity of the 13th Amendment
Synopsis: My social justice project highlights the loophole inside the 13th amendment in which the amendment still allows slavery and involuntary servitude of those in prison. As a result of this ambiguity, many incarcerated African Americans suffer from being treated like slaves; forced into penal labor and face other abuse, even in present day prisons.
